Activating the Library Resources Tool

  1. In your Blackboard course hover over the + sign above the left-hand course menu.
  2. Select "Tool Link".
  3. Name the tool link - recommended name "Library Resources".
  4. Set Type to "Library Resources".
  5. Make sure the "Available to Users" box is checked.
  6. Click on "Submit".

That's all you need to do. Now the Library Resources link in your Blackboard course will automatically populate with course-specific resources if we have made a guide for your course. All other courses will automatically populate with subject-specific resources.

What resources are included?

The Library Resources tool adds links to the following course or subject specific resources:

  • subject guides
  • library databases
  • subject librarian

The tool also includes our chat widget and appointment scheduler so students can get personalized help when they need it.

Let us know if you have any suggestions for resources to include on the Library Resources tool. Please send all suggestions to Janet Hack, jhack@mcdaniel.edu.
